Bar Glass Set
The Everything Glass
Made with a versatile Mt. Fuji design, this might be the only glass you really need.
Both beautiful and usable, the glass works as both a conversation-starter and a daily driver.
A thick borosilicate body makes the glass tough to break and easy to clean (even in the dishwasher). A larger capacity, wider base and narrower top prevent spilling and tipping. The iconic shape holds fizz, aerates wine and opens up liquor — all while looking stunning and winning design awards.
Clear through the medley of glasses you've collected over the years. The Mt. Fuji is a closet reset for your kitchen cabinet.
Introducing Mt. Fuji — The World's Most Versatile Glass Shape
Inspired by Japan's tallest mountain, our essential bar glass is designed for everything. With a wide, flat bottom that gracefully narrows as it rises. It holds beer fizz longer, aerates wine faster, and opens up liquor beautifully.
Wine. Beer. Cocktails. Coffee. Water. Liquor.
You only need one glass for all of it. This is it.
1.25 cups, exactly –– a half cup more than traditional glassware. The little extra room goes a long way, making possible to layer, stir, scoop and serve in the cup. It also means that your pinot isn't brimming, your IPA isn't foaming over and your granola-yogurt ratio is never off.
Wide base, Narrow top
The wide base makes it near impossible to accidentally tip over. The narrow top gathers foam while preventing spilling.
Made for Life
By using thick borosilicate glass, we’ve created a bar glass that is dishwasher-safe, microwave safe and highly shatter/scratch resistant.
Based on the Tokyo Midtown Award winning design by Keita Suzuki, our essential bar glass impresses as a serving glass. When holding wine, it becomes a much-hyped "stemless" glass. When asked to serve liquor, it conjures images of swanky, mid-century Manhattan bars.
But holding your beer is where the essential bar glass shines. Roughly a second after pouring in your first beer, you'll understand where the design gets its name. As the foam rises to the top, the glass begins to remember the snow-capped peak of Mt. Fuji. As the foam falls, or your drink dwindles, the great mountain gently disappears.
Monolayer Borosilicate Glass
Made from a single piece of borosilicate glass, the set is not just stunning— it's also tough.
In technical terms, borosilicate glass has a very low coefficient of thermal expansion. In regular terms, that means that the essential bar glass will not crack under big temperature changes like regular glass. That durability has made borosilicate the glass of choice for high-end restaurants, wineries and now, The Essential.
But we went further, opting for a thicker layer of glass than most. By doing this, we not only accomplished greater temperature-resistance but also much great shatter-resistance.
Forged By Hand, Mouth, and Fire
This morning in southern China, our glass maker began her day by placing molten glass in a 2,000 degree furnace. Once hot enough, she began rolling out the glass on a steel table –– shaping it into our iconic Mt. Fuji shape. To separate the glass, and create negative space, she blows into the glass from the opposite end of a five foot long pipe. A single glass takes up to twenty minutes to complete.
Amazon sells a six pack of the exact same glass for $156.

High Heat Resistant Borosilicate Glass
Made from a single thick piece of hand-blown borosilicate glass. It's not just stunning –– it's also shatter resistant. Each glass can withstand heat up to 450 degrees fahrenheit without shattering. In comparison, regular, thinner glass cracks at 300 degrees.
A Perfect Design
Not just in theory. In practice.
